"Just Beyond This Forest"
Directed by Jan Lomnicki
In 1942 in Warsaw's ghetto, an Aryan washerwoman is
rehired by the Jewish woman she worked for before the war, to take her young
daughter to the countryside until the war is over. The rude maid takes full
advantage of the situation by allowing the desperate woman to shower her
with gifts and money before she'll take the child away. The maid and child
leave by train, but it's stopped, and they have to proceed on foot. The
innocent youngster and the maid begin to develop a strong bond, and by the
time they are stopped by a German patrol, the woman is prepared to risk her
life for the child. In Polish with English subtitles. 90 minutes.
